The main applications using Digital Image Correlation and Laser Shearography are:


• Coupon testing providing full field strain data and FEA validation.


• Blade bending tests providing full field deformation data on large areas.


• Automated robotic inspection of blades at a production stage for defects such as wrinkles and disbonds.


• In-field blade inspection via ropes or cranes for defects such as wrinkles disbonds, delaminations, impact damage, and water ingress.

INSPECTING YOURWRINKLES!


Given that modern wind turbines produce in excess of 6 MW, the aerodynamic loads and structural demands on the blades are increasing, being driven by the necessity for longer and lighter blades. Consequently, there is a growing need to incorporate new composite materials, making the design, manufacture and maintenance of modern wind turbines an ever increasing challenge. Dantec Dynamics has recently supplied state-of-the-art instrumentation for testing, inspecting and maintaining wind turbines to companies in the USA and across Europe.


EAST PORT CONSTRUCTION OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE


Great Yarmouth Port Company Limited, trading as EastPort UK, is already an established player in the offshore wind industry and also been involved with the offshore wind sector when it was the designated construction base for the Scroby Sands project - one of the UK’s first commercial offshore wind farms.


Commissioned in March 2004, the £75m project generates enough energy to supply over 30,000 homes and EastPort UK remains the Operations & Maintenance base for Scroby Sands.


Great Yarmouth now has land available for manufacturing and construction facilities, significant quay space and of course deepwater, giving direct access from the sea. The main advantages of the port are location, facilities and experience as well as ample quay space and land, deepwater and direct access with a 24/7 culture and attitude specifically aligned to offshore support.


Eddie Freeman, CEO commented “The port has been a centre of excellence in offshore support for oil and gas for the past 45 years and the entire culture of the port and indeed the town, is aligned to this sector” and concluded, “There is significant and ongoing interest in our facility. The port is fully committed to offshore wind farm development and sees this as a major part of the ports mix going forward as it has always been in the past.”
